Robert De Niro called President Donald Trump a ‘lowlife’ (and more), and ‘BANNED’ him from sitting on the bench dedicated to him at the Annual Hudson River Park Gala last week.
During his speech at the Pier 62 event in Manhattan, New York, the 74-year-old actor slammed Trump and his time so far in the White House.
“One of my pleasures will be keeping people off my bench who don’t deserve a view of the park like Donald Trump,” De Niro said at the Annual Hudson River Park Gala. “F**k you, Donald Trump. It’s a horror with this motherf**ker.”
According to the New York Daily News, De Niro went on to describe Trump as a “lowlife.”
Over the past year, De Niro has repeatedly attacked and threatened Donald Trump, and in the run-up to last year’s presidential election declared he would like to “punch him in the face.”
“I mean, he’s so blatantly stupid. He’s a punk, he’s a dog, he’s a pig, he’s a con, he’s a bullsh*t artist, a mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about, doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care, thinks he’s gaming society, doesn’t pay his taxes,” the 73-year-old Godfather star said in a video broadcast.
“He’s an embarrassment to this country,” De Niro continued. “He talks [about]how he wants to punch people in the face… I’d like to punch him in the face.”
In August, De Niro again attacked Trump, describing his as a “blatant racist” whose days in the White House are numbered.
“He’s dangerous as it is,” De Niro said in an interview Deadline. “He’s terrible, and a flat-out blatant racist and doubling down on that, and it’s good that he does because he’s going to sink himself.”
It should be noted that though De Niro continues to bash Trump, he has yet to condemn his good friend Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood producer who has been accused of numerous rapes and assaults in the past week. Twitter users have fired back at De Niro over this and pointed out his hypocrisy:

De Niro has often been pictured with old pal Harvey Weinstein. He admitted that they haven’t spoken since the Weinstein sex scandal imploded.
An Amazon and Weinstein Co.-produced drama starring De Niro has been scrapped following Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment scandal.
De Niro has so far refused to comment on Weinstein and the escalating sexual harassment scandal surrounding the disgraced producer.
But the hypocrisy has been rampant.
What is ironic is that ALL of Hollywood has spent decades putting this filth on the big screen. Morality of any kind went out the door a long time ago. So for De Niro to try to take a moral high ground is absolutely silly.
In fact, Hollywood almost blacklists faith-based films and its producers.
Whatever you do, don’t come out as a Conservative in Hollywood or you will never work again.
Hollywood made huge excuses for Bill Clinton, and later, Hillary in the name of Bill.
Of course then there is Roman Polanski. We don’t even dare go there. They have supported and made excuses for him for decades.
